The ThermiTight® system treats loose, sagging skin anywhere on the body without the need for surgery. The lack of an extensive recovery period makes this an attractive option for Skin Spectrum patients who wish to tighten skin without taking time out of their lives. ThermiTight treatments represent a new era in facial and body rejuvenation, comfortably and effectively keeping the years at bay.

HOW DOES THERMITIGHT WORK?
A small probe inserted just under the surface of the skin delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy, which heats deep tissue and causes the tissue to contract. This contraction stimulates the production of collagen. As collagen production increases, the skin’s elasticity improves, and the skin appears markedly taut and firm over time.
ThermiTight can be used to treat sagging skin on the neck. Patients often undergo Kybella® injections a few weeks before their ThermiTight procedure to achieve a tighter, more defined neck and jawline. During your consultation, our dermatology experts will inquire about your goals to develop the most sensible treatment plan for you.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
To manage any discomfort, a ThermiTight treatment begins with the administration of a local anesthetic. Once the area is numb, a board-certified dermatologist creates tiny incisions, into which a small cannula that transmits RF energy is then inserted. Thermal imaging guides the doctor throughout the procedure, and the ThermiTight system continuously monitors the temperature of the RF energy and the skin to ensure that the tissue and the skin in the treatment area always remain at a safe temperature.
The body responds to this procedure by producing collagen, and increased collagen results in firmer, tighter skin with the passing of time. Most patients are satisfied with their results after a single treatment, but others may require multiple sessions.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE?
The downtime for ThermiTight is manageable, but significant swelling and bruising are possible for two to four weeks following the procedure.
You may notice results after 30 days, with additional improvements after six to 12 weeks. As collagen production increases, results can continue to improve for up to one year, and they can last for three to five years. Normal aging necessitates a maintenance treatment every few years.
